Recorded in 2017, this episode refers to Anne's previous Barry nomination and not her most recent one, which might hint at the kind of quality of comic we've got here...  We talk about her ability to inhabit incredibly funny and idiosyncratic Australian characters, her eye for detail, and then completely miss out on her excellent ABC "noir"-ish sitcom "The Edge Of The Bush".

One of the most recognisable faces of the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour", Ron "Tater Salad" White is adored by fans of his caustic wit and everyday calls-it-like-he-sees-it Texan charm.  We talk about his discovery of the part of his brain that went on to make him his fortune, about what it means to murder a crowd, and what it's like to be a joke when he's working on you...

244 - Tez Ilyas

Very funny, amazingly watchable, and offering genuine insight into his personal and social politics, Tez Ilyas is a Northern, working-class, muslim comic capable of going all the way. Exceptionally frank about his disappointment on being overlooked for award nomination, he goes on to identify the historic lack of diversity on the judging panel of one of the most highly regarded prizes in British comedy...

Her laid-back style masking a sly wit that rewards your full attention, Beth Stelling is an indomitable comic force.
Live at SXSW, we discuss risk and reward with regard to pace, bridging alt and mainstream, "putting your briefcase away" when it comes to your set-list, and why she'll never make another bagel sandwich...

It's hard to imagine a more expressive, searingly honest and comprehensively funny comic than Maria Bamford.  After a year which saw her series and new special on Netflix propel her finally to the earning that befits her talent, Maria reflects on how money, property and prestige don't solve anything, what it's like to be an ex-underdog, and whether it's possible to make a not for profit TV show. We also cover the relationship between her bipolar and her day to day happiness, and ask how you function when "weakness is the brand"...

James Davis' star is in the ascendent.  In this live special episode from South By South West in Austin Texas, we discuss how the "Hood Adjacent" comic keeps his material provocative without being exploitative.  Just off the back of writing gags for Will Smith on a major new movie, we learn how James is levelling up...

Marvellous Maeve Higgins has an apparently meandering style that conceals some seismic punchlines. Now resident in the US, she reveals how running a comedy workshop in Iraq and podcasting with different immigrants has led her to a more global consciousness. She shares some brilliant writing "cheats" for silencing your inner critic, and we explore in detail the close relationships she has cultivated with the editors of her novels and column...
